    when did a 1.8 become a bad rating

  • bizzarr1000

    im sry if i came off like i was bashing y&r didnt mean two

  • bizzarr1000

    i all so the amc and oltl should do one hour shows once a week

  • sophie

    I’m loving GH as always. It’s alot better this week, with the vets all coming back. I’m upset Days is letting go of Drake. They aren’t treated well at Days. Unlike GH they are front and center! GO GH!!!!!!

  • bizzarr1000

    i enjoy gh so much now have been enjoying amc and oltl

  • rob60990

    omg how many more comments is bizzarr1000 going to make? This is borderline spamming.

    I think DAYS is just “resting” DRAKE a few weeks. They are weaving characters in and out so they aren’t back burner and can enjoy a break then be back in the forefront. Like bringing in LAURA a few days, Bringing CHLOE back in a few days, having NANCY in and out, Nick’s mom in & out, it’s like they are ALL around Salem, but not forced to sit stagnant with no story line for weeks. I LIKE IT!

  • I like this show

    Days is still a borefest, Sami EJ STILL are the focus of the show and the fossils Marlena and John.

    GH hasn’t been that exciting this week nice to see “Todd” back sorta…

  • moshane58

    Glad to see posted up but really don’t believe that many people missed them last week.Soap fans are dedicated.We can’t see them live we will DVR or watch on soapnet.Sorry for the big lost on Y&R.Watched years ago and Jeanne Cooper was the one I remembered the most.She is an icon and a great actress.Sorry for the lost Y&R fans.As I told her son,,She built those walls at Y&R strong and steady for all who follow her.RIP Jeanne Cooper you will be missed.

  • Eileen

    OK FIRST OF ALL LET ME COME RIGHT OUT AND TELL YOU I do NOT appreciate these insinuations being made here already that JUST BECAUSE I DO NOT LIKE GH that makes me a hater or someone whose opinion is no longer valid! It IS NOT MY FAULT THAT GH is a terrible show so do not make me the target of your anger for that please! FURTHER MORE I HAVE BEEN PERSONALLY INSULTED and harassed on these boards MANY TIMES when stating the positive FACTS about B&B! You don’t have to agree with me that B&B is the best soap on right now even if the facts prove that, it’s your right, and it’s also your right and your business to watch a lousy show like GH or DAYS but you DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO PERSONALLY ATTACK me or to insult my family because of that!

  • chris23

    I actually like Days more the past 3 weeks than compared to before that when Chloe/Daniel/Jennifer were the focus. It was such a borefest with them.. Since Chloe finally changed and left It has been so much better.

    I’m intrigued with the storylines of Sami protecting Will going against that jerk Nick and Rafe joining in on the action trying to help will and protect his sister. The who done it story against Rafe could potentially be an interesting storyline..

    Also the Brady and Kristen story struck me as odd. However it is not boring, in fact why the hell is John acting as if he has feelings for her? It makes me interested because I feel he is setting her up but you never know if this is legit. I surprisingly like Will with Sonny they are a good match.

    I like scenes between Kate, Nicole, and Sami they had an awesome hate triangle back in the day as they were all enemies. I’m not sure if they still “hate” eachother or what the deal is as I started rewatching this show about 2 months ago after being a loyal fan in the 90s and 2000s I took an eight year break. I plan on watching this show, it seems to me it will be getting much better.

  • DOOLfan

    I think Days plays it too safe too often. After 3 months, Chloe just admits defeat and has herself committed. What they could have done was have Chloe (and possibly Parker) die in an accident at Jennifer’s fault. That would have made for a good storyline. Jenn would have kept it a secret for a while, then Daniel would find out in some horrible way. There’s so many possibilities, but Days takes the easy way. It’d be nice to get RC and FV from OLTL and GH to fix Days. I still like Days, but take more risks.

  • bizzarr1000

    @rob not trying to be a spammer i just like talking to othere fans sry that makes u mad

  • bizzarr1000


  • lampshade

    @DOOLfan, I totally agree with you-there are so many storyline possibilities on DOOL which never seem to come to any climax. Chloe just dumping her child and going off to therapy just didn’t hit the mark. Having said that it did mean less focus on Daniel/Jennifer which was a good thing. Despite my issues with the show, I will keep watching-I’ve done so since 1983, and some storylines are compelling-Kristen/Brady, Will/Sonny, EJ/Sami. Just wish they would let Hope move on: Bo is gone can we please admit it and move on!
    B&B: Brooke pregnant, again!!! Just how fertile is this woman-very watchable, though.

  • Rob R

    I like the “little engine that could” analysis for DAYS. NBC is falling apart everywhere you look on the schedule, but DAYS hangs on, quietly, with no network lead-in or lead-out, and no promos other than during the Hoda and Kathie Lee portion of TODAY. I feel like NBC’s problem list has 100 items on it before they even notice DAYS. I hope they can just give DAYS a three-year renewal and let the cast and crew relax.

  • Kelby

    Y&R and DOOL stink! Let’s get serious. Both shows have needed help forever now and I do not believe they will ever get it. Doom!

  • PatF

    Kelby…you obviously don’t watch.

    Y and R had a fantastic week of drama last week. AWESOME Friday cliffhanger too!

  • Fakeem

    I was disappointed that there was no tribute to Jeanne Cooper after her death. I know they film at least one month in advance of airdate, so maybe they’re rewriting to send her off properly.

    I just hope they advertise the airdate it in primetime, as i lost interest in Y&R when Phelps took over, and i really want to see how she handles Jeanne’s death.
